's policies. let's watch. >> this is not a case of protests directed at the united states at large or at u.s. policy. this is in response to a video that is offensive. >> chris: you don't really believe that? >> chris, absolutely i believe that. in fact, it is the case. we had the evolution of the arab spring over the last many months but what sparked the recent violence was the airing on the internet of a very hateful very offensive video that has offended many people around the world. now, our strong view is that there is no excuse for violence. it is reprehensible and never justified but in fact there have been those in various parts of the world who have reacted with violence. their governments have increasingly and effectively responded and protected our facilities and condemned the violence and this outrageous response to what is an offensive individual yo video. there is no question what we have seen in the past with satanic verses and the cartoon of the prophet muhammad there have been such things that have sparked outrage and anger and this has been the proximate cause. >> chris:
the united states in the wake of that antimuslim film. take a look at this map. you can see just how widespread the protests are. even though many have been violent, there were also several peaceful protests in many countries. and the violent protests were actually a lot smaller than some may have expected. now, many americans just really don't understand why these protests are breaking out across the world. joining me in studio now to help break it down, michael han lan, specialist in foreign policy. good morning, michael. thank you for coming in. >> my pleasure. >> i have to say, the first question i have when these protests first started breaking out, seemed to be a very serious situation. then as they continue to go on and be a little bit sporadic, i wonder how much is authentic, related to the film, how much of it is just an excuse to protest america? >> i think it's a great question. it's also very important you emphasize correctly, but in a way a lot of people haven't, these protests are generally small. a number of them are nonviolent. today it's already midday sunday and mos

an end to such behavior. >> thank you very much. there was a rally in support of the united states in front of the white house yesterday. muslims from libya came out to say only extremists hate the united states. they held candles and talked about the impact of this week's deadly violence. inspired by a similar demonstration supporting ambassador stevens last night. the incidents overseas raise the issue of the cultural and social divine between muslims, christians and people of the jewish faith. we're going to explore that more in our next hour with a board member of the muslim society. >> over the past day we've learned more about this antimuslim movie which has sparked this outrage. it has called innocence of muslims. it had been written and directed by an israeli american. but both in the u.s. and israel have turned up nothing. antimuslim act at this visit who says he served as a consultant says he spoke with him yesterday and he was concerned about what happened to ambassador stevens. some actors in the film say they were misled about the movie and claim some dialogue was dubb
, or is this something much deeper, a long simmering distrust of the united states? >> it's all the above. it's much long-simmering resentment of the united states. it has some legitimate reasons, but it's essentially a pretext, and it is not really about religion. it's about politics and world power. it's about what's taking place in these countries that are going through a tremendous complex, painful transition. take egypt, for instance, extremists and islamists with different interpretations of islam competing with the mainstream islamist group in egypt which is the muslim brotherhood. >> right. >> they whipped up frenzy against the movie initially, and then the president, who is very cynical, was looking to protect his flanks so he called for more monstrations instead of containing the demonstrations or condemning them so what you have is a competition in egypt as to who is going to shape the future of egypt, and using this movie as a pretext. >> which raised the question. is this about the united states really a all, or is this about uncertainty in these people's own futures and their religious lead
